How you can create False Floor in Revit with Autodesk Inventor Models !?!

Always I thinking what happen if we could had pattern in Floor Command in Revit then we can create many detail for Floor Pattern, but We have another command and the base procedure for use this command is very similar to  Floor , Yea , the Answer is Roof .

Do you ever think about Sloped glazing Roof ?! and the ability this roof gives you ?!? you can create pattern in the Horizontal face with this command.

Let’s use this Command for Floor False Modeling in Revit.

First step is family modeling and I did this with Inventor .

Base part is Tile and you can see how I export this model from Inventor and Imported that into Revit Family.

Go to the File Menu ( 1 ) and select Export > Cad Format ( 2 )

In the export dialog box change the File type to *.SAT format ( 1 )
